Watch excerpts from our live multi-media performance which immerses the audience

in the history and our story.


DREAMS OF PEACE & FREEDOM premiered at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2014, and has since toured nationally and internationally.


In the run up to the 70th anniversary of the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials and 75th anniversary of the European Convention on Human Rights in November 2020,

we will give larger scale commemorative performances alongside other instrumentalists and singers 

 at the 7 centres of Maxwell Fyfe's story.



where he holidayed as a child with his grandmother and learnt of his family history of the Clearances


where he grew up and was educated at George Watson's School until he was 18


where he practiced as a barrister and was MP for West Derby for 25 years


where he studied at Balliol College


where the War Crimes Trials took place


where the Convention was drafted and European Court was later established


where he lived and worked in Westminster


The Humans In The Telling is a story sharing our family tale to encourage others to share theirs.


There are many ways to tell a story and we are working on a film, a podcast and a book to reach out to as many people, in as many media as possible, leading up to the 75th anniversary of the Nuremberg Trials and 70th of The European Convention in 2020.
